Staff Restructure

In order to grow the JGF Club to the best it can be we had a restructure of staff and roles in the organization. This has created even more employee and volunteer opportunities. This has offered new roles for our current employees and has enabled us to expand our staff team so that we have a much clearer path which will lead us to success

Unfortunately we had to change the venue from The Spot and Derby, we tried The Living Lounge for a while but this was not successful due to overheads.

Just Good Food is a small Café and Delivery service which has been introduced to provide funds for the Charity but predominantly for our members to have the opportunity to gain skills in cooking and a working environment. This has progressed well over the initial six months, we have employed another member of staff to support this also supplying employment in the area

New Fun Sports Program

Fun Sports had been running for over a year without any program in place which did work well but we wanted to add some structure so that when our members joined us they knew what to expect on that day and could also choose when they would like to attend according to their preferences. We still do some adhoc activities to keep the element of surprise

Clowne Club

Very quickly developed and already has 13 members. Brilliant club held at our main office with access to our equipment at all times

Bolsover Club gets too big for its Room

Moved offices

We didn’t move far, we just moved downstairs to allow us more office space, storage space, the area required to hold a club and a working kitchen to allow us to open the café. We spend a lot of time transferring rooms, one in particular is regularly changed from a café to a club room and now we also offer it to be rented as a meeting room. An indication of just how versatile and resourceful we are!

Lottery funding

We received another round of Lottery Funding which is fantastic news! It means Just Good Friends club will be around for at least another 5 years. As always we will use this funding to grow and develop, making Just Good Friends Club even bigger and better!
